John Said

Healing hand
once upon a time
stronged the weak
cured the blind
when he died
the whole world cried
knees in the mud
hands in the sky

come home 
come home
john said
come home

worried heart
get no rest
crying child 
get no breast
fever brain
in a dying bed
spoke to the vision
the vision said

come home 
come home
john said
come home

coal sleeps 
in the mines
wind blows 
through the pines
two pairs of wings
floated by
one passed low
one passed high

come home 
come home
john said
come home
